          Branch Details

          Ferntree Gully is often called ‘the library in the park’, and the light, bright atmosphere carries into the building through the big glass windows. There is a warm friendly feeling inside whatever the weather, and parking is a breeze. For children there is an adventure playground close by in the park, ideal for a picnic. Special Collections
